Hi Natasha, I'm very sorry to hear about your experience but I'm afraid this has nothing to do with us as what you described in the above is for the Cotswold Country Park and Beach (lake 32). https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attraction_Review-g186286-d3530398-Reviews-Cotswold_Country_Park_Beach-Cirencester_Cotswolds_England.html

Very friendly staff, great to keep the teenagers entertained during the school holidays - you also have lots of other water parks surrounding so can visit one of these or more! Good value for money and safe as they are issued with lifejackets.
